…we must all offer up a hymn of praise to the God… who is ‘Lord of lords’ (Deut. 10:17, Ps. 136:1, I Tim. 6:15, Rev. 17:14, 19:16)… Lordship is not simply a matter of being superior with respect to inferiors but a complete possession of all that is beautiful and good, and is furthermore a true and unshakable stability.
– Pope Dionysius
